Six more crematoriums to be built in NP

The Commissioner of Local Government has approved the construction of six more crematoriums in addition to the two existing crematoriums in the Northern Province (NP).

The Commissioner granted approval on Thursday after considering the requests made by several Local Government bodies in the Northern Province.

At present, there are crematoriums in the North only in Poonthottam, Vavuniya and Pommaveli, Jaffna. Due to the increase in the number of deaths due to coronavirus, new crematoriums have been constructed in Jaffna, Mannar, Mullaitivu and Kilinochchi.
